I am a visual person, and so I will try to be brief with the words.
I asked for my first camera at the age of nine.
Purchased my first camera at the age of nineteen, and haven't been without one since.
Took drawing and painting courses at Eastern Michigan University, and the University of Michigan.
Served my graphic art apprenticeship at a number of in-house studios in Chicago, IL, and Ann Arbor, MI.
Worked as a designer in Ann Arbor, Miami, Boston, and the San Francisco Bay area.
Lived and traveled on a small sailboat for several years, photographing the ocean, sky, the foreign ports and people we visited: the Bahamas, Haiti; the Azores, Portugal, Morocco, and others. This was a wondrous experience of living in the vast openness of sea and sky.
I now live in Jackson, Michigan, where I continue to work as a graphic designer/photographer, and pursue my love of photography.
